Renée Timberlake - Founder of Yoga Heals International
I started doing yoga when I was 18 years old while volunteering at a hospital in the Mosquito Coast of Honduras. It's now been more than 20 years and while I've changed in many ways three relevant things have remained consistent for me: I've kept practicing yoga regularly, I love to travel and learn from people around the world, and I want to spend my life in service to others. With a Master's degree in Cultural and Educational Policy Studies and a career focused on educational access and opportunity for low-income students, I've spent a good deal of my life learning about how trauma impacts an individual's ability to succeed in life. In yoga, I see an opportunity to help people retrain their nervous systems thereby healing from past traumas and developing resiliency to face those traumas yet to happen. I am hugely interested in how others are doing this work and a large motivation for starting Yoga Heals International is to be a source of information for those wanting to know more about yoga's healing potential. I also teach yoga classes in Berea, Ohio and lead retreats focused on nervous system retraining (in a nutshell) with my Energy Psychologist mother, Dr. Holly Timberlake.
